We had breakfast at this "typical" soup place in Cusco. Its specialty is sheep's head soup. I stood on a stool in corner of the kitchen for these pictures.

Cusco main square, 39KB

Plaza de Armas, the main square in Cusco. The rainbow flag on the left is the Inca flag. It wasn't raining; the stones are just worn very smooth. I put my camera on the ground, and propped up the front of the lens barrel with my wallet. I tripped the shutter using the self-timer, to minimize camera shake. The exposure was about 4 seconds. A street urchin stopped by at 2 seconds into it to ask for money.
Lamoids of various kinds and ages, 79KB

The taxonomy of these animals were hotly debated. The proprietress of the gift shop assured us they are a vicuņa, a llama, and an alpaca, left to right. Our tour guide, 72 and full of piss and vinegar, thought she's full of it.

This picture cost me 5 soles (2 each for the big kids, 1 for the little kid,) but they seem like nice kids. And the parrot didn't demand a tip.
